> Hi,

It appears inside of Etoys Alpha2, see screen prints but not inside of Etoys 4.0 and not in MyDocuments/Etoys.

The alpha is a to-go version. It will use a folder named "Etoys" in the same folder as itself. You should find it next to the Etoys-4.1-alpha.app folder.  That means it will not use your MyDocuments/Etoys (unless you move the alpha folder itself to MyDocuments).

If you use Korakurider's windows installer that would use the "correct" Etoys folder in MyDocuments.

Would it have been less baffling if I had named the alpha version "to-go"? I probably should do that.
